Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

The Franz Team offered shelter from the cold! Shoppers stopped in for a FREE steaming hot cup of cocoa with marshmallows or whipped cream, or chose Starbucks coffee while they shopped downtown merchants in Newton, KS during the shopping extravaganza the past few weeks. Good times were had by all! Located on the cusp of the Main Street shopping avenue, the 500 Main Place Building is home to the Chamber of Commerce, RE/MAX Associates, Jasperson Chiropractic and several other businesses.

Mosey on in at your convenience and if you want to take advantage of the new lowered interest rates, now is the time to buy your new home!
